    Always liked the thought/looks of saddlebag guards on touring bike so found nice set from Hill Country Customs (Ape Hangers motorcycle Handlebars for Harley Davidson Motorcycles - Hill Country Custom Cycles) and installed them today. Initially thought about cutting front mount off stock saddlebag bracket to match w/guard, but ended up getting the black set from Zanotti's HD so all installed parts were:

    - HCC Guards
    - HD Support-Left (49194-09A)
    - HD Support-Right (90781-09A)
    - HD Antenna Bracked (76516-09)

    Pretty easy project - just remove seat & saddlebags, prop exhaust, remove old saddlebag supports, install new supports w/guard & torque to spec. Hardest part was going to Ace HW for the bolts I needed to connect guard to frame & lower supports because this kit wasn't HD so needed some extra parts.

    Thanks guys - these guards are thicker/stronger than HD so that was one positive factor. Also, a guy could cut front mount off your stock saddlebag supports & make them work, but I figured best to go w/100% black look. It doesn't show, but that's just me...:p

    I don't see the saddlebag-guard/support kit, esp. in black at the site. Do you have links to what you did, specifically? Do they have matching black engine guards for front?

    Enjoy,
